Papertrey Blog Hop

I really didn't expect to get to participate this time around. After Tomio and Leah finally got over the flue, I ended up with it. But I was SO happy that I got better in time to actually make something. The problem for me is, I don't have any sets that haven't seen ink yet. And while I DO have couple of sets that are collecting
 dust(!), there is a reason for that....I have couple of sets that I haven't ever gotten to work well for me. One of those was Heart Prints. So I challenged myself to use it. And this what I made:

I also used some scarlet jewel, which I really haven't used in ages either. I did use my go-to woodgrain background, but that's ok since I combined it with my "dusty" set, right? I also finally got my sewing machine to cooperate again :) yay!
Thanks so much stopping by! I hope you are enjoying the "hop" :) I'm just glad I got to create something this week :)

  5. Way to go, Laura! Heart Prints is one of my most used sets. Funny, isn't it, how what works for one may not work for another... Love the way you curved the XOXO stamp around the edge of the circle. Glad you were feeling well enough to participate!
